Uberti Horseman

Part of me really wants to track one down rather than the El Patron with the hammer mounted firing pin and flat mainspring.

    If they sold the 1851 Navy, with a 6" barrel, with matte blue finish, wolff springs, with a crimson trace laser grip in green, oh yeah that is never going to see the inside of a safe, ever!

    GaBoy45,

    You might want to check out the cowboy action forums before buying. The Beretta Stampede was a Uberti Colt SAA replica with a transfer bar safety (Beretta owns Uberti), and they were not highly thought of. I am not sure if the Stampede had the coil spring or the traditional flat spring.

    Personally, my view of the SAA and SAA replica market as of today is this: If money is no object and you want an "authentic, four position hammer, hammer on empty cylinder only" type SAA, Colt is currently a good choice. They have had their ups and downs, but they are, as of 4/27/2013, up.

    If you want the authentic four position hammer but money is an object, Uberti in all of its many variations (excluding this Horseman, which I do not know anything about) is a good choice. They generally seem to be well thought of in the CAS community.

    If you want an SAA to shoot a lot, and you want to carry six up, and you don't care about the authentic four position hammer, then Ruger's Vaquero is for you.

    If only the Vaquero had a 1/8th inch front sight and a correspondingly wide rear sight notch - with no rounded edges around the rear notch.
